Photoreforming of biomass in metal salt hydrate solutions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal salt hydrate (MSH) solutions allow for the complete solubilisation of biomass and we demonstrate its use as a reaction medium for the photocatalytic reforming of lignocellulose. Different types of photocatalysts such as TiO2 and carbon nitride can be employed in MSH to produce H2 and organic products under more benign conditions than the commonly required extreme pH aqueous solutions.
